Abstract

A device design technique for silicon nanowire MOSFETs for low power capability beyond 10 nm technology node is demonstrated using 3D numerical simulation and physical analysis. The subthreshold kink effect enables the use of low supply bias without compromising performance. The kink-assisted methodology overcomes the fundamental and thermal voltage-limited subthreshold swing (SS).
